I had the pleasure of attending the Greater Manchester Young Enterprise finals on Wednesday at Manchester Metropolitan University, where our Year 10 team represented the school fantastically well and came runners-up and now progress to the North West finals.  The team were Adam Smith, Aleyna Adamson, Tony Kemp, Joshua Matthews, Jordan Cleary, Hannah Barston, Melissa Dutton, Callum Kelly, Ciara Chengo and Jack Finney.  Fantastic efforts from the whole team, I am VERY proud of you!

Miss Mahon took ten of our Year 9 girls to the Wigan schools trampoline competition. Yasmin Costello, Ebony Starkey, Lia Johnson, Olivia Tyrer, Holly Smith, Isabelle Hudson, Molly Blundell, Alannah Webb, Lauren Jones and  Pennie Smith have all shown outstanding commitment throughout the year and it paid off when they claimed silver medal overall as a school. All pupils were fabulous and represented the school superbly well.  Keep up the great work girls!

Picture of cell modelsMiss Moran told me that her Year 7 class (7Y4) produced some excellent models to represent specialised cells and have gone above and beyond with their effort.  Please see photo below, brilliant work 7Y4, well done.

Mrs Snape told me that James Taberner 7C, Michael Griffiths 7C, Isobel Banks 7C, Ella Halsall 7C and Emily Barber 9A2 answered the April challenge question and earned themselves five achievement points.Tthe answer was the Russian cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova!
Mrs Jones told me that Rhys Findlow and Jamie O'Hare, both Year 8 pupils, have collaborated to produce a rather wonderful story of Oliver Twist in rhyming couplets.  A superb achievement!

Mrs Landor’s Year 10 class have been preparing for the end-of-year exam using a variety of revision techniques in their RE lessons over the last two weeks. She has been very pleased with the effort pupils have demonstrated in lessons.
10R1 and 10S3 discovered that revision can be entertaining when they tested their knowledge of key words using playing cards. Each card represented a key word and to win the game, players had to lose all of their cards by answering questions correctly. Each definition was hotly debated before it could be accepted! Congratulations go to Rachael Garry-Madden, narrowly beating Tracey Gaffney, to be the last one standing in a revision round of 15-1.

Miss Gallagher is once again impressed with Year 7s efforts this week; the achievement point collection continues to go well. In 3rd place this week with nine points is Kai Pickavance, in 2nd place is Ethan Cooke and Isobel Banks with ten and in 1st place with thirteen is Ella Halsall.  Well done Year 7, keep up the great work!
